This is the fine print. You should probably read it.

 

 The set-up fee includes an attentive read by a RAR rock star who will create your story bible, which includes a plot summary, lists (such as characters, quotes, places, key items, etc.), and lots of other goodies we can use to identify your book’s target audience and inform your promotional platform.

  Our set-up fee is based on an assumed word count of 100K or less. There is an additional charge of $.004 per word or for books over 100,000 words.

 With all our subscription packages, you can tell us how to split up the time among your social-media platforms, or you can let us figure it out according to what we’ve learned about the Interwebz, your audience and their engagement habits.

 If you don’t have social-media accounts set up (or set up correctly, hint hint) we can do that for you. See our hourly rate on the à la carte page.

 Your author profile consists of your answers to two RAR questionnaires. We tried to make them fun to fill out, but even if you hate them we need the info, so pleeeeeaaase fill them out as thoroughly as you can.

 Instagram, Litsy, and Snapchat can only be fully utilized as phone apps, so we regret that we’re unable to post to them on your behalf. We’re sorry, and we’ll keep checking in case they make them more PC-friendly or we find a work-around.

 If you subscribe to the RAR Box via quarterly, semiannual, or annual subscription and decide for any reason you want to cancel, we’ll provide a refund for all months not already sent—but please let us know if there’s something we could do to make you stay!

 We reserve the right not to create, post, share, retweet, pin, or otherwise engage with material that is overtly political, espouses a specific religion, or in any way fosters hatred toward any group, person, or being.

  On a similar note, we’re pretty chill but we believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect, including us. We reserve the right to not work with folks who feel otherwise.

 If you’re unhappy with us for any reason whatsoever, please talk to us and give us the chance to find a positive resolution before you tell the Internet we suck. Contact Jane at jane@ryderswriters.com or (520) 262-2544. She promises to really listen.

 But if we did good, feel free to trumpet from the rooftops. We’d love for you to review us on Facebook, Yelp, Foursquare, or the platform of your choice.

 All written material on our website and social-media platforms is the property of Ryder Author Resources, LLC, as is Edgar the Thesaurus (created by the amazing Sam Edwards). We’re cool with fair use sharing of our stuff as long as you give credit where it’s due, and link to us when possible.
